White Spot’s Sixth Annual Pirate Pak Day Raises Record $65,916 to Send Kids in Need to Summer Camp

August 15, 2013 - Since 2008, Pirate Pak Day fundraiser has generated $268,386 for Zajac Ranch for Children, providing 160 kids with unforgettable memories.

Thousands of guests across B.C. and Alberta visited their local White Spot restaurant yesterday for the annual Pirate Pak Day fundraiser, helping Canada’s longest-running restaurant chain raise a record $65,916 to send kids and youth with special needs to Zajac Ranch for Children.

White Spot donated $2.00 from each Kids and Adult Pirate Pak sold – plus contributions received in lieu of Pirate Paks – to Zajac Ranch, an established B.C. charity that gives children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities an unforgettable camp experience.

With the sixth annual Pirate Pak Day concluded, the initiative has raised a total of $268,386 and sent 160 kids to summer camp since the program began in 2008 – helping provide an unforgettable and empowering experience.

“Pirate Pak Day has once again resulted in an incredible outpouring of generosity from White Spot guests,” says White Spot president Warren Erhart. “We are delighted to celebrate a record-breaking donation. This year we sold 32,458 Pirate Paks to both the young and young-at-heart, providing the opportunity for us to help even more kids enjoy life-changing experiences at Zajac Ranch.”

White Spot guests recently expressed their excitement leading up to Pirate Pak Day on Twitter:

“White Spot has demonstrated a true commitment to improving the lives of children and young adults with special needs by supporting Zajac Ranch,” said Mel Zajac, founder of the Zajac Ranch for Children. “We are so thankful to be partnered with White Spot for Pirate Pak Day; it’s the perfect way to celebrate childhood while supporting a worthy cause. On behalf of everyone at Zajac and the kids who come to our camp, thank you!”

White Spot is helping send kids to Zajac Ranch for ‘White Spot Week’ (August 19 to 23), where they will meet new friends and participate in outdoor sports and activities, such as kayaking and horseback riding.
